I'm very excited because I came up with a better, less windy way to take my high quality digital images of my paintings. When I was taking slides with film, I always took them outside in the natural light. When I switched to digital--ummm, last October--I kept the same system. But I'm finally figuring out how to use my camera and software. So this time I took my photos in my studio. And I think they came out well. I had the paintings and the computer right there, so I could adjust the color to match exactly. Technology is awesome!
I got this alchemist's scale from a faux pirate stuff website. Yes, I said faux pirate stuff! It was $7. A couple of weeks ago I heard a piece on On Point about science writer George Johnson's new book The Ten Most Beautiful Experiments. I have yet to buy a copy, but I liked the idea of old timey science equipment. So I got these things so I can play around with some imagery. I have some beakers on the way as well.
This is my favorite picture from our February trip to the Berkshires. Charley was lounging on the giant bean bags in the Jenny Holzer exhibit at Mass Moca, when some little kids attacked!
